When Rufus Gives Your Grief

Rufus is the snooty, know-it-all, art critic that lives inside the mind of every artist.
What justifies grief? Most agree that a major loss, whether it's a loved one or a job, would more than justify it. But what about losing part of yourself? 🤔
You see, Rufus knows what makes us tick, and that is where he does most of his work. He tricks you into giving up pieces of yourself for the sake of something else you deem important.
He is sly in his tactics, playing you against yourself to start a battle of wills. Except, the wills that are battling are the pieces that make you...well...you.
Rufus makes it seem like both can't win. It has to be one or the other. He's whispering the old adage "You can't have your cake and eat it too."
And the more you believe him, the more power you give him. You are chipping away at yourself each time you pick something over another. And let me tell you...THAT justifies grief.
Want to know how to stop it?
With proper goal planning and time management, you can accomplish the things at home and at work that are necessary for your and your family's well-being and still have time to allow your passion to flourish.
It won't be easy, and Rufus will fight you every step of the way, especially now that he knows you know what he is doing. But don't become complacent with your passion because you feel obligated to do other tasks in its stead. You need not feel guilty for pursuing something that brings you happiness and fulfillment.
Have your cake and eat it too. 🍰
